Highs over southeastern Australia are extending an onshore flow over Tasmania
and eastern Victoria, and is generating low level cloud in the vicinity with
patchy low cloud also visible along the New South Wales and Queensland coasts.

A cloud band associated with a surface and upper level trough lies across
southwest Western Australia and southern South Australia. High level cloud is
streaming over South Australia, victoria and Tasmania from this feature. Patchy
low cloud is visible behind the cold front over southwest WA. High and middle
level cloud is streaming through central WA from a trough over the Indian Ocean.

Remaining parts of the country are mostly clear due to the highs extending a
ridge over central Australia.
